Holy Sepulcher Cemetery
Orange County may be known for its sun-drenched beaches and dazzling real estate, but amidst the palm tree-lined streets and Stepford-like neighborhoods lies some darker shades of orange. In these places, restless souls are known to roam and midnight candles burn indefinitely. Orange County is home to some of the region’s most notoriously haunted graveyards. So, in celebration of America’s ultimate night of fright, throw on that Halloween costume and take a tour of the cemeteries and mortuaries that go bump in the night.
Dia de los Muertos or Day of the Dead has a history spanning to more than 3,000 years and is celebrated in Mexico and the states, including Orange County. It is a celebration to honor the deceased by building private altars, decorating sugar skulls and celebrating the lives of those who have passed. Take a look at the events taking place in the Orange County area this year.
